Monograph on Magnus Hirschfeld’s Institute of Sexology (1919-1933)

Monograph on Magnus Hirschfeld’s Institute of Sexology (1919–1933)


Our Research Centre was supporting Rainer Herrn in preparing a monograph devoted to Magnus Hirschfeld’s Institute of Sexology (1919–1933), in collaboration with the Magnus Hirschfeld Foundation and the Berlin Society for the History of Medicine. The monograph details the Institute’s various activities and the extent of its influence, and locates it within intellectual and social history. The book’s subjects include the intellectual and scientific views held by the Institute’s researchers and their effects on sexual therapy and forensics, as well as the Institute’s work on sexual education, counselling and reform. It also explores how the Institute’s collections were displayed in its Museum of Sexual History and Library of Sexology.
